Got my wireless steering control installed on my 86 a few days back. Plenty of time to get all of this done since my country had already went into lockdown due to COVID-19 two weeks ago.

Not too difficult, just had to patch 3 wires from the module to the head unit and power from the accessory. The buttons were then placed at the plaque area below the traction control buttons. Then a buddy gave a great idea - 3D print out a plaque piece which would slot the two buttons in.

Got the STL file from Thingiverse (thanks michaelxchristopher) and another friend made the necessary alterations to the design (thanks kev). Got it printed, did some additional fitting work with some sandpaper, finished the surfaces off with some trim protectant and it looks pretty good now.

Tried to install my new battery, only to find that the one recommended as compatible by the web shop had the positive on the left side .

Started a return, and ordered the correct one (Varta D47, which is listed an incompatible )...

Yes. It is actually more significant than I thought it would be.

Anyway, haven driven a good friend's 2017 BRZ with 18" wheels, I really feel like some future upgrade for me will be at least 18s in the rear.

Well much softer. The Lava was dropped on RSR Superdown springs so rode like an old hay wagon. I didn't mind it though. In comparison the stock 2020 suspension is like raiding around on multiple rolls of Charmin!
why just 18s on the rear?

I know that ithey may be a bit to modern for you but that is clearly a covered wagon NOT a hay wagon!
